Private secluded villa on the Lycian Way with cafe's and restaurants close by. Car is essential.
Orchard Villa is a stunning property set in the beautiful village of Faralya. With spectacular mountain views to the east and ocean views to the west it stands in approximately one acre of land with it's own pool. For those wishing to venture out, Olu Deniz is a 20 minute drive which has many restaurants and bars and is also famous for its beach and the Blue Lagoon. For the walkers The Lycian Way is a 509 km, 25-day way-marked footpath around the coast of Lycia in southern Turkey, from Fethiye to Antalya.Trekking is best in spring or autumn – February-May or September-November – summer in Lycia is too hot for long walks. Otherwise relax and enjoy the villa, gardens, pool and scenery.

About the Owner
We live in Devon and I am currently working but due to retire next year to enjoy our villa in Faralya.
My wife has now retired following many years working for a very well known travel company and I am a IT Project Manager for Britain's favourite Department Store.
We both enjoy gardening, hence the 1 acre plot and orchard, as it is great to pick and eat your own fruit, depending on the time of the year.

This is a perfect Villa for a relaxed holiday
We have just returned from a fabulous two-week stay at Orchard Villa. The setting is idyllic and very peaceful, and the Villa is very well equipped, with four good bedrooms (all en suite). Phil and Sue, the owners, arranged our car hire and boat trip for us and made us all feel very special. Highly recommended.
From the Owner
“Faralya is a traditional Turkish village in a quite rural location overlooking Fethiye Bay with a glorious back drop of the mountains. It is a very peaceful and tranquil place with a few local restaurants which provide excellent food and Turkish hospitality. The village has a taxi rank, phone box, a small village shop, which stocks basic provisions and a regular bus service which cost a few Lira and run regularly between Kabac, Faralya village, Olu Deniz, Hisaronu and Fethiye town which is some 40 minutes drive but worth a visit as it has many restaurants, shops and banks. In the last few years we have planted numerous fruit trees (58 to be precise) including Banana, Fig, Mandarin, Oranges, Lime, Lemon, Apple, Grapefruit etc. The weather is fantastic.”
Activity and Interests
The villa is approximately 20 minutes drive to the large and lively beach resort of Olu Deniz, and the more relaxing World famous Blue Lagoon. Here you can indulge in many types of water sports, or have lunch in one of the many beach front restaurants and do a spot of shopping.
Nearer home, a 20 minute walk will take you to the local beach or a 5 minute drive to Kabak beach.
The villa is located near the famous Lycian Way which runs from Fethiye to Antalya which is ideal for those wishing to have a scenic walk/hike.
Dalaman Airport is the nearest to the villa being some 1hr 45 minutes drive. The journey will take you through breathtaking scenery from Olu Deniz to Faralya passing Butterfly Valley on the way. A car/jeep is essential for your stay at the villa.
Whilst the village can cater for the basics, a trip to either Olu Deniz (20 mins) or Fethiye (35 mins) for your main shop is essential.
Turkey is rich in culture and opportunities to experience something new and exciting.
A trip to Fethiye is strongly recommended. Tuesday is Market Day being the best market for vegetables, spices, cheeses, clothing etc.
There are many stunning beaches on the Fethiye Peninsula and Fethiye itself is a fabulous market town with a beautiful harbour, where you can admire the boats and relax with a Turkish coffee.
